Google Says More Searches Now On Mobile Than On Desktop

Last year Google employees said that the mobile search queries would possibly overtake desktop queries sometime this year and now Google has just confirmed this.
Google says that “more Google searches take place on mobile devices than on computers in 10 countries including the US and Japan.” The company declined to disclose more on what the other countries were, how lately this change occurred or what the comparative numbers of PC and mobile search queries are now.
Google also explained that the mobile queries include mobile browser-based searches and also those coming from Google’s mobile search apps.
This includes only smartphones, not tablets because Google counts tablets with desktops.
With the disclosure of this news that mobile search has now surpassed desktop search, we get a bit more colour and context for the recent mobile-friendly algorithm update.
